New Berkley Trans Optic

7 posts in this topic

Man does this look like a sweet new product coming out. It is going to hot. I can't wait to try it. It is similar to the Vanish transition but in a Mono. Pretty cool stuff.

Hiya -

Hmmm. Kinda looks like the old Berkley Photochromatic stuff...gahh...what was it called. Trimax maybe? The Transition part of Vanish Transition is actually pretty cool - it's the Vanish bit I don't like...heh. This stuff might be pretty neat for jigs and other line-watching type tactics. Wonder how it compares in other characteristics to other mono. More like XL, or XT?

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

The line's properties, based on test data, seem balanced – maximum shock resistance and knot strength, plus excellent flexibility and break strength.

Might make for some sweet ice line too!

Berkley offered it's Big Game line in this color for a few years. It was my favorite line for flippin and pitchin. I hope this new stuff is comparable. Anybody seen it for sale locally?

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
